Cruise from Lisbon on Seabourn Legend
9th - 20th April 03


Leaving Lisbon

Aboard ship

Funchal, Madeira

Las Palmas

Unhappy ending
We were meant to stay just a few hours in Las Palmas on 12th Apr. before going on to Morocco (Agadir and Casablanca) then sailing up the river to Seville before returning to Lisbon. However a storm was bearing down on us. The Captain decided to stay put - for Sunday and Monday. By then he would only have time to return to Lisbon - thus missing out all the places we wanted to see!. Not only that but we would have to sail through the storm. A lifeboat drill "for real" was called and everything was lashed down...
We jumped ship and flew home from Las Palmas.
At least we had an extra few days in The Lakes!
